Oil Heat Council of New Hampshire marks four decades at annual convention
Dozens of fuel oil and multi-fuel marketers rode the waves and enjoyed the ambiance of the Bay City, Portsmouth, N.H., from Sept. 20-22. Members and guests were entertained by Sprague Energy at the Axel Johnson Center on the banks of the Piscataqua River. And a genuine New England Lobster Bake was the highlight of the convention’s opening night, Sept. 20, as the Oil Heat Council of New Hampshire celebrated its 40th anniversary with its Annual Convention at the Portsmouth Sheraton.
Following the annual business meeting the next day, there were several informative seminars on accounting, biodiesel use and human development. In the afternoon, attendees chose from a sailing trip sponsored by Tim Stone of StoneHill Environmental, kayaking with Ed Burke of Dennis K. Burke, a golf outing, tugboat rides or a walking tour of historic Portsmouth.
“A large part of the success of a convention depends on offering a wide range of activities for members and their spouses,” said Bob Garside, executive director of OHC-NH.
Garside also announced that next year the OHC-NH will travel to Nashville, Tenn., and visit the Grand Ole Opry for its convention.
